  Nevada REALTORS 2022 State Conference proves big hit  
Natalie Davis discusses diversity during the Conference.

The Nevada REALTORS state conference took a hiatus for more than a decade, starting in the early 2000s. Years later, NVR leaders made the commitment to bring it back and their decision was rewarded with insightful and well-attended conferences in 2018 and 2019.  

The COVID pandemic and stifling forest fires forced the state conference into a virtual setting for 2020 and 2021 respectively. However, that was not the case last week as the event returned with an in-person format for the 2022 event, which was hosted by the Hyatt Regency in Incline Village at Lake Tahoe.

Following NVR's fall Board of Directors meeting last Wednesday morning, the conference kicked off with a welcome reception Wednesday evening followed by a day and a half of programming. Click here to read more.

  September is REALTOR Safety Month  

Did you know the National Association of REALTORS offers a myriad of resources to help keep its members safe. With September being REALTOR Safety Month, we thought it would be a good time to highlight those resources.

The goal of the REALTOR® Safety Program is to reduce the number of safety incidents that occur in the industry, so every REALTOR® comes home safely to his or her family every night. We will accomplish this goal together with our members by improving the Safety Culture in the industry: Talk about safety; create a safety plan and follow it; and encourage your fellow REALTORS® to do the same.
